A set of eucalypt hybrid trials has been established by the Forest Products Commission with a variety of partners across the south-west of Western Australia since 1996. The Joint Venture Agroforestry Program provided the opportunity to do two field measurements of these trials in the summer of 2000/2001 and 2002/2003 and to collate the outcomes of these assessments in this report. The project aimed to optimise direct returns from tree products whilst maintaining the environmental benefits that tree crops can provide. It is hoped that this report will provide valuable information to tree farmers assessing the economic value of the Eucalypt hybrids in comparison with the often utilised, Eucalyptus globulus.
